K9 Couture Boutique Closing - A Sad Time for All Dog Lovers and Our Yorkies

I received a email recently telling me that one of our favorite websites was closing at the end of this year. "K9 Couture Boutique" would no longer be open for our readers to shop at and for us to get our Yorkies harnesses and all the other items we loved.
Nicole, the owner of "K9 Couture Boutique" is a true friend and always went out of her way to help us with everything we asked of her. When we were ordering harnesses for our Yorkies she took the time to walk us through all the details and steps to assure us a perfect fit for all 3 of our Yorkies. This kind of customer service is a rarity and her caring heart will be missed. Nicole was very kind to us at "Waterside Yorkies", she even gave us our own discount code to pass on to our readers so they too could enjoy her website and get some great items for their pets.As of January 1st of 2011 we won't be able to go shopping with our Yorkies on one of their favorite sites. We will miss you Nicole and wish you the best of luck in whatever you do next. Our thoughts and prayers will be with you and please let us know if you ever decide to do anything else that we can help you with.
From All of Us at "Waterside Yorkies" and for all of our readers and followers we say good-bye friend and thank you for all of your help and kindness since we met you. We hope 2011 will be kind to you and your family and may God watch over you at all times.
So readers please be sure to email Nicole and wish her luck, tell her how she will be missed and that we all appreciated her customer service, her website and her love for animals. She is a very rare gem found in life's pathway.
Goodnight Nicole from your friends at "Waterside Yorkies". And Thanks again for everything you did for our Yorkies.
We hope to find a new source for these harnesses and will post a new website once we find one that we feel can provide for our readers. Please check back and see who we find. And if you know of a good source please email us and let us know about them.

Our Yorkies Just Love To Be Read To...Don't Yours? "Lighthearted Press" Has Magical Books For All Pet Lovers.



We were lucky when we found a new website and great source for books that all pet lovers will enjoy. Books that not only stimulate your mind but touch your heart as well. We love our animals...our Yorkies are our "furbabies"...they are part of our family....and act like it at times.
The site we found is "Lighthearted Press". And the author is Christine Davis, a true animal lover, for her passion is to elevate her readers into a whirlwind of emotions that pulls you into the lives of the animals you are reading about.

We got two books to read to the Yorkies....yes, I know reading to dogs is silly...welcome to our world. We will also read one of them to Nana's school kids. They too will love the story of Hero and experience the touching feelings of the story and the illustrations will stimulate their hearts and minds.


We received "The Shelter Dog" - A simple book that tells the story of an angel dog, Hero, who comes back to earth to begin the experience of being adopted. The illustrations are beautiful and will help you follow the story of Hero and how he finds his forever home. You'll want to read it again and again for it will touch your heartstrings for sure.


The second book we got was - "For Every Dog An Angel", the Yorkies will enjoy it but we won't read it to the kids at school for it touches the loss of a pet...something a little too personal for schoolkids to be taught at school. But we will offer the book to parents if they are interested. We got it because we have many friends who have suffered the loss of a pet. A loss that we have felt many times but know that we will see our pets again some day. The book tells the story of the deep love between a dog and their owner....a love that's forever indeed.
So please check out "Lighthearted Press" and enjoy all of Christine Davis's books. Some are at your local book stores,but if you still can't find them just go to "Lighthearted Press" website and go shopping. And remember to get a few for those special people in your life that also have been touched by an animals love.
And yes Tinkerbell I see you staring at me...I will read you these books one more time then you will have to entertain yourself....Yorkies love to be read to.

Thanks for stopping by and we hope you will enjoy reading these books as we did. And remember if you can't find them at your bookstore, just look on their website and get them all. Just link on to any of the books pictures and you will go directly to their website. Have fun and please come back and visit with us again. From all of the Yorkies at "Waterside Yorkies" we hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year....and may 2011 bring us all more happiness, love and peace.

Tucker Gets A Royal Pet Club Treatment

Well, between fostering a pair of Yorkie rescue's, taking care of the three we already had and life in general we have been very busy around the Waterside Yorkie's house. But the Yorkies we were fostering have gone on to forever homes thanks to some very dedicated people at RescueNCYorkies . So we had a little time to go out and visit with some of our family.
And when we decided to come home we brought our daughter's Yorkie, who is Carly's brother, home for a bath. Tucker was going to have a day at the Waterside Yorkie Spa....thanks to some great shampoo, conditioner and spritz we got from Royal Pet Club (click any picture and go directly to their website).
They have released a new scent "Italian Milk And Vanilla"...smells good enough to eat, and last a long time on your pet too. So Tucker got the royal treatment and we now know why he doesn't come to visit much. But he really enjoyed getting a bath, and didn't mind smelling so nice either. He's a great dog and deserved a day at the spa and we hope he'll come back to visit us again, maybe we won't give him a bath next time...it will be just for fun with all of his relatives.

The shampoo is tearless and will help your dogs skin by moisterizing and soothing it, while leaving your dog with a silky, shiny coat. Doesn't Tucker look happy? OK, so I'm stretching it a little with him liking a bath, but he did enjoy the rubbing and attention. And we know it's good for him, so everyone gets something out of it.
We followed up the shampooing with some conditioner and used the spritz while grooming him. He was like a new Yorkie when we got done with him and looked as good as he smelled.

So doesn't your dog deserve to be pampered like royalty...go check out the Royal Pet Club website: http://www.royalpetclub.com/index.html and see all of their products, each made with organic and natural ingredients. And since your one of our Waterside Yorkies blog readers you can use our discount code - WS-Yorkie and get 10% off your order at checkout time. Link on our blog directly below our current posts and become one of our followers of Waterside Yorkies and your dog will look as good as Tucker does below.

And while your looking over the Royal Pet Club website, look into who the creator of these great products is. See if he looks familiar, and read about what a prince of a guy he is. He really does love animals, by developing a major line of products to help their grooming needs, and by contributing to all animals needs by donating $1 on every order processed to the North Shore Animal League. And when you ask them for their free samples they have to offer, he will send a $1 to the American Humane Association. So when you buy some shampoo, conditioner and whatever else you order, make sure you ask for their free sample offer, this way your helping your pets and other peoples pet too.
Thanks Royal Pet Club for your outstanding products, the Yorkies at Waterside Yorkies know you made them specially for them, but they are willing to share them with others too. After all, doesn't all dogs deserve to be treated like royalty.
And thank you for stopping by and visiting us, we hope you'll come back and see us soon. Link on and become one of our followers so you won't miss out on some really great products, all tested by a well trained Yorkie panel. Now go get some shampoo from Royal Pet Club and let your dog has a royal spa day.

Carly Gets A New Harness From K9 Couture Boutique

(Since Posting This Article K9 Couture Closed Effective Jan. 1st, 2011. We will miss being able to shop there with the Yorkies. Nicole has been a kind friend to us, she even gave us our own discount code to pass on to our readers to help them save whenever they shopped on her site. We will miss you friend, and hope 2011 will be extra special to you and for you.)
Well, I guess I'll tell you all about the third harness we got for our Yorkies from K9 Couture Boutique a couple of months ago. I've already told you about the pink and black harnesses we got for Tinkerbell and Shiloh, and how they really like wearing them. So to finish the story I'll tell about the lavender one we got for Carly...another bulldog type pulling Yorkie.We choose the New Ultra USA Non-Choking Step-In Dog Harness because we firmly believe in the choke-free harness design for our Yorkies, and for all Yorkies. The Yorkie breed has a history of having trachea problems, so a choke-free harness is the way to go to eliminate this problem. It fits securely under the throat and on the two front legs, totally taking the stress away from the dogs neck.
We ordered the choke-free harness in the Wisteria Lavender color, because it sounded so tranquil and calming...ok, we liked the color too. Carly looks cute in lavender and it's different from what we already had in collars and clothes for her.


The double d-rings give you a firm clip to attach your leash to and is located away from the harness for accessability. And to put the harness on is as easy too, just have your dog step right on into it and fasten it on the dogs back with a easy to use buckle and velcro closure.
All three of our Yorkies have loved the harnesses we have gotten from K9 Couture Boutique and we hope you will go check them out. We highly recommend the choke-free harnesses, and they have a wide variety of other items for your pet. Carly recommends the Wisteria Lavender Choke Free Harness and she wonders why all Yorkies aren't wearing them...she feels so good in it and she doesn't get choked when we walk her.
It's one of the safest harnesses available for the smaller breeds of dogs and is adjustable for perfect size and comfort. It's available in a wide range of sizes and you will also find a good choice of color selections too.
And while your shopping on K9 Couture Boutique's website, make sure you go check out their selection of NFL logo items, just in time for football season. We have been looking at some really great items.....just might have to do it...Shiloh is a big Redskin fan, and Tinkerbell and Carly are Panther fans...a split doghouse for sure.
So take a break from your day and go take a few minutes and do some web shopping at http://stores.k9coutureboutique.com/StoreFront.bok and since your a "Waterside Yorkies" blog reader, use our discount code - WS-Yorkies and get 10% off at check out time. (Since originally posting this the website has closed so the discount isn't available at this website anymore.) Great items, great savings, what else could you ask for. And if you have any questions, their customer service department is excellent and will help you with all of your needs, questions and requests.
They were helpful with all of our harness needs, and made our shopping really easy and fun.
So go have fun shopping and tell them you found out about them on our blog and tell Nicole hello for us.

Royal Pet Club's Organic Wipes Help Cleanup Our Yorkies Messes


When you have a pet or a herd of pets like we do, you also will have a mess or two occasionally. Finding something to help with these messes is a wonderful find. We found some wipes that are so wonderful that it's tempting to use them for our own messes. The scent of coconut and vanilla are so sweet smelling and the size of the wipe itself is unbelievable...but we have so far, just used them on the Yorkies.
What is this wonder product? It's Royal Pet Club's Coconut & Vanilla Organic Wipes.These refreshing, moisturizing wipes are enriched with the hydrating properties of 100% Organic Coconut, Vanilla and an exclusive mix of special soothing Organic ingredients chosen especially by our Italian laboratory to pamper your pet’s skin and coat.
We are Yorkie owner's and we have gotten use to what a Yorkie can get into. We have found a solution to this problem and welcome the challenge of keeping their fur, their eyes, their paws or whatever clean. The jar contains 40 very large wipes that you will be able to clean the mess you have and any other problems you might discover while grooming your dog.
I believe we could wash the next litter of puppies we have with a single wipe they're so big. We should probably get some of their Pure Paws Natural Wipes also, for the smaller wipe ups we have. But the smell of coconut & vanilla is so wonderful, it's a pleasure to clean the mess up. Now we don't look forward to all their messes, but we don't run away from them either.


So go check out Royal Pet Club's wipes, we recommend the coconut & vanilla, but they also have a lavender & cashmere and a papaya & aloe vera scents for those of you who want something else. They also have other grooming products, we got some shampoo, conditioner and a spritz, but we will tell you about them at a later date.
We know you'll enjoy these wipes, especially the size of them and in our case the scent. It's like being on a island in the tropics, as your wiping your dogs mess....ok, not really, but we can dream, it's our mess.
The Yorkies will smell like coconut & vanilla for days after being cleaned up by these wipes. It really has helped a major problem we had and also helped the Yorkies fur and skin. Our new problem is that our friends will want to "take one home to try". We need a supply of samples to pass out as they leave our house...some people give you a mint, we'll give you a doggie wipe.
Royal Pet Club has a testimorial page full of pet owners and groomers stories that you will be able to read and see what others think of their products. We hope you will take the time to go check them out and if you see something you like, use our discount code - WS-Yorkie and you'll get 10% off at checkout time. And re-use it whenever you reorder your next purchase from them. It's Royal Pet Club's way to help you discover and use some great products, and our way to help out our readers of our blog.
Thanks for stopping by, and we hope you'll come back and see us again soon. The Yorkies appreciate you taking time and reading about their lives and hope you'll link on and become a follower of our blog "Waterside Yorkies".
Now go check out Royal Pet Club's grooming products and remember to use our discount code when you checkout. You can just click the header above or go by following this link: http://www.royalpetclub.com/index.html . Enjoy shopping and have a great day.

Bark Off Helps Control The Yorkie Yappers

When you see those infomercials for all those wonder products you feel a little curious sometimes. We saw the ad telling us that there was a miracle antibarking device out and that we needed it. Since we have "yappers", I mean Yorkies, we knew that excessive barking comes with the breed, terriers like to be verbal. They bark to protect us, bark to talk to us and bark to get our attention. And we can live with a little barking, we love our animals, and their little yappy ways. But if there was a product that could help eliminate some of that extra barking, we had to try and see for ourselves. So we looked over the reviews online, checked out the safety of the device, and went ahead and got one. Bark Off is a small and portable device that uses a high pitch sound to get the dogs attention. When the dog barks it emits this sound that only dogs can hear. We then added "NO BARK" to the sound of the Bark Off and the Yorkie herd got quiet, very, very quiet. This thing is suppose to work in a safe and humane way, to both us and the dogs. We thought about trying to test out a solid white piece of wood with our dogs...but just use the Bark Off with dead batteries...the sight of the thing quiets the Yorkies...so technically it works...just not as automatic as the commercials show...if ya got it as a gift...be glad...if ya bought it...oh well, ya tried it and maybe you got better results then we did...maybe not.




Our Yorkies still bark a little, but we have the control to either allow it or turn on the Bark Off and tell them "NO BARK" and silence is ours to have. We don't leave it on all the time, since we do like to know that someone is outside our house, or let them bark at their friendly cat going by. But if the Yorkies don't stop barking after first announcing a strange noise, a cat or someone outside, we flip on the Bark Off and a little "NO BARK" and they settle down instantly. Now it might be all psychological, we might just want it to work so bad we think it's working. Anyway, something makes the dogs stop barking...maybe it's the shape of the device or maybe they can read what it says on it, "Bark Off" and they just stop barking because of that.




So now Shiloh has made peace with his new toy, well, our new toy. He will even lay down beside the Bark Off on his favorite Redskin blanket. The Yorkies have been trained to quiet down just by seeing the Bark Off come out. And if they don't stop barking within our set time limits, a flip of the switch, a little "NO BARK" and silence is ours again. We know it's a combination of the voice commands and them seeing the device, but hey if it works...we got something for our money. We just don't buy batteries for it anymore...just the sight of the device and our "NO BARK" works...but we would have had this outcome if we hadn't tried the Bark Off device.

So if you have a excessive barker you might want to give Bark Off a try. You might get better results then we did, hey it might even work like it's suppose to. Check them out at http://www.barkoff.info/ and see for yourself what Bark Off is all about. Good Luck!!

The Waterside Yorkies get some treats from Little Badness


We had to get some of these treats for the Yorkies...there's a picture of Gatsby, the CPO (Chief Pooch Officer) on the package...and he's a Yorkie; they have to be good. So we looked over Little Badness' All Natural Dog Treats' website, read all about what these treats were made of, read about Gatsby and how his owners developed these treats to help his sensitive stomach. Now came the hard part for us, try and choose which flavors our Yorkies would like to try. So we did what any reasonable pet owner would do, get them all.So when the box arrived our Yorkies helped us unpack the treats. How they knew the box was for them we don't know, maybe they smelled the treats inside. We made them line them up so we could see what we got and let them choose which ones they wanted to try first. Again they picked all 5, but we held our ground this time and only picked 2.

First round of Little Badness treats would be the Blueberry Anti-Oxidant treats, with pieces of blueberries in each treat. Blueberries are known to be a good source to help boost the immune system, help fight diseases, and even help inhibit mechanisms of cancer cell development. Blueberries even help heart disease and have been used to fight memory loss. As they say on their website, "good things do come in small packages".
Our second choice to get the Yorkies started in treatland was the Smoked Salmon treats. Now if Carly eats these they must be good.....ok...where did that treat go? Carly come back here....wait...she's eating it....no she ate it....yep....it's gone. Who would think that Carly, our queen of finicky eating, would gobble it down, that whole big treat....that whole big SALMON treat. It must be beyond good, it must be great. So we broke up the next one and gave it to Shiloh and Tinkerbell, "Miss Piggyhog" Carly already had her share, plus some. The other Yorkies gobbled it down and came up for more. But they will have to wait til another day, too much of a good thing would spoil these dogs and we couldn't have that, could we?
The Salmon treats are high in essential omega-3 fatty acids which will help your dogs' coat, skin and joints. And they don't smell fishy either. They smell like home-baked cookies from your mom's house, wholesome, fresh and tasty and despite what Carly says, these cookies should be broken up and divided between the Yorkies for portion control...understand Carly...portion control.

Oh great, now Shiloh's begging for more...come on dogs give me a break....I know you love these things..but you can't have more right now. Maybe if you clean up your toys and pick up around your dog bowl we'll give you a little more later. No Tinkerbell you can't operate the vacuum, you're smaller than the hose nozzle and might suck yourself into the vacuum....just keep sweeping with that broom you got. Who knew that all it would take is a little bribery to get the Yorkies to help around the house.

But then again, just look at these Little Badness All-Natural Dog Treats and you'll see why the Yorkies are busy cleaning up the house and hoping for another treat. They even recognize the package of treats when we move them, and can even hear when we open the re-sealable zip lock bag they come in. But we really won't have to worry about trying to keep these treats fresh, they won't last long enough to go stale.
So remember to go check out http://littlebadness.com/ and look over all of their treats. All made with 100% natural U.S.A. grade ingredients. Free of preservatives, chemical additives, animal by-products and genetically modified organisms. In other words healthy treats to help your dogs health and well being. You can also find them on twitter and on facebook under Little Badness.
And make sure you share your knowledge of these treats with your friends, maybe place an order together. Your friends will love you, your dogs will love you and your friends' dogs will love you...you can't lose. And when you place your order tell them you read about their treats on our blog "Waterside Yorkies". And please come back and see us again real soon. We appreciate you taking the time to come visit us and read about our Yorkies. Until next time, we hope you have a safe and happy day.

No More Car Sickness Since We Found "Calming Collars" For Our Yorkie.


When you have to travel and one of your dogs doesn't like to go anywhere in a car it becomes a situation that starts your day off on the wrong foot. So when we found the "Calming Collars" website that stated that they had a collar that not only worked, but worked "naturally", so we had to see for ourselves. Click on the "Calming Collars" header we used up above and check them out for yourself. And since your one of our readers of "Waterside Yorkies" they'll give you 10% off your order if you use our special code when you place your order. Just use the code: ws-yorkie and 10% will be taken off your order. Use it everytime you order and tell your friends about it too. I'm sure you know someone who has a pet that needs a little calming down.
We have had Yorkies for many years and Shiloh is the only one we have ever had that goes "green" when he gets in a car. Short or long car rides doesn't make a difference, he hates cars, the motion in the car, and the passing scenery out the window....everytime he turns "green". So we thought we would give their "Good To Go Calming Collar" a try.

They come in a variety of colors so you will be able to find that perfect design to match your pets personality. We chose the one above and waited patiently until it arrived. In the example below you will notice that is comes with a 2 channel width, but since we have Yorkies we got the single channel width. They also have a 4 channel width for bigger dogs. Shiloh didn't need to be covered up with the collar, only cured with it, so we got the single channel one.

And in the picture below you will see that it blended in with his fur and wasn't bulky at all. You really couldn't see it unless you dug around his neck looking for it. We didn't want to embarrass him on top of everything else.


The collar comes with a adjustable snap-0n clip that makes it really easy to use. You can make it fit just right for you pet so they won't even notice that it's on them.
But just how does this collar work? And is it safe for our dog to wear, what if he knocks it off and the other dogs tear it up?

It uses aromatherapy, the scent of the different herbs used calms the animal down. On their website they state that they have a better than 95% success rate. Pretty impressive we thought, so we let Shiloh give it a try. And if by some chance he gets it off his neck the herbs inside aren't harmful if ingested. This is good to know, especially if you own Yorkies...they love to tear things up...must be the terrier in them.
Shiloh seem to be doing better as we were putting it on him. Maybe he knew it was going to make his life a lot better and make our lives better too. No more turning "green", panting like a wild dog, pacing back and forth on the car seats.
Soon he laid down and stopped panting. He slowly began to just rest calmly in our laps, peaceful and comfortable. Shiloh rode the whole trip without being sick, we will test it again in the weeks to come. We may have solved the motion sickness problem we had with our Yorkie.
We read on the website that if you don't leave it on the dog all the time, you could put it back in the plastic bag and it will keep almost a year before it loses its effectiveness.
So if you have a dog or a cat that suffers from motion sickness we recommend you give "Calming Collars" a try. And soon you will be able to travel carefree without cat stress or dog anxiety.
The only problem now is we have to hide the car keys or Shiloh might take one of the cars on a true joy ride.

We got another collar for thunderphobia (fear of thunderstorms) and will be telling our results in a upcoming posting on our blog. Please check back and see how we did with the "Calm Me Down Calming Collar". If it works as well as the "Good To Go" collar did, we will be very happy pet owners.
